Xist Music and Jahaziel have released the lead single from Jahaziel's forthcoming album due out later this fall. "They Don't Know" features a guest appearance from Maxi Priest. Jahaziel and his family do community outreach with The Eden Network in North London. "This song is a social commentary describing the darker side of the community I live in. A side that many within it want to escape, and one that many outside of it would rather ignore."

You may know A-1 from his internet-famous debut mixtape After School Special or his equally well-received 2011 follow-up The Book Of Adam. After releasing his latest mixtape The Thurl Tape last fall, A-1 is back with a new video. The video for "Retinas," featuring singer Xiomara, tells a narrative of a relationship's gradual descent and eventual collapse with A-1 rapping all the verses but speaking from the point of view of himself for the first half of the song and from her side for the hook and final verse.
While he puts the finishing touches on his highly anticipated “Zero Gravity” LP, Montreal emcee Ceasrock delivers something new titled “Pompous” produced by 514IndoRecordz. Check it out below and be sure to stay tuned for more new material on the way soon!
